Centre Hospitalier Côte de Lumière Implements Wi-Fi RFID Staff Safety Application from Stanley Healthcare Solutions

Stanley Healthcare Solutions today announced that its AeroScout® Staff Safety solution has been successfully implemented in the Emergency Department of the Centre Hospitalier Côte de Lumière in Sables d’Olonne, France. The solution is based on the AeroScout Real-Time Location System (RTLS) and leverages standard Wi-Fi networks to enable faster deployment, simpler maintenance and lower total cost of ownership. Centre Hospitalier uses the solution to reduce response times in the event of a staff member encountering an emergency situation.

“We’re committed to providing a safe environment for our staff and patients,” said Jacques Jadaud, CIO at the Centre Hospitalier Côte de Lumière. “The AeroScout Staff Safety solution gives clinicians peace of mind that help is always just a press of a button away, should they need it. We’ve seen great results so far in terms of reducing response times for potentially urgent situations.”

The Centre Hospitalier Côte de Lumière is a 498-bed hospital, with 212 beds for short stays, 240 beds allocated for long-term care of the elderly and 46 beds for adults with disabilities. The hospital is focused on continual improvement and enhancement to the care it provides.

Centre Hospitalier deployed the AeroScout Staff Safety solution in its Emergency Department. The solution, implemented by Stanley Healthcare’s partner BE-IP, consists of AeroScout Wi-Fi Tags with call buttons and AeroScout MobileView software. Nurses and physicians wear the tags and simply press a call button if a situation arises where help is needed. The solution alerts the security team and also provides the real-time location of the staff member in duress so that the team can arrive as quickly as possible.

“Hospitals are dynamic, stressful environments, and enhancing safety is always a key goal,” said Eric Devineau, Vice President of European Sales at Stanley Healthcare Solutions. “We’re proud to partner with the Centre Hospitalier Côte de Lumière to support its efforts to reduce response times for potential urgent situations and to provide a safe environment for its staff and patients.”

AeroScout has more than 500 healthcare customers worldwide, with market-leading visibility solutions that include Asset Management, Temperature Monitoring, Patient & Staff Safety, Infection Control and Workflow & Resource Management.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.
